See the way the Domino Effect works. Because one good deed can trigger an avalanche of positive change.

This is an emotional show about people helping people, about the workers of non-governmental organizations and the volunteers from all over the world sensitive to human suffering. They reach the poorest regions of the globe to help build a better reality, to show that it really doesn’t take a whole lot to make some positive changes in one’s life.

The host, Dominika Kulczyk, accompanied by the TV crew sets off to the Philippines, Madagascar, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Georgia, Uganda, Togo and Iraq to give insight into the work of NGOs building houses and bridges, rebuilding schools and helping out super typhoon-affected communities, providing electricity, giving shelter to street children, creating  a playground and a refugee camp’s library.

Dominika Kulczyk, who learned strategic philanthropy at the Rockefeller Foundation and the Bertelsmann Foundation, is the head of the Polish NGO Kulczyk Foundation, which provides funding to projects throughout the show. She has worked as a social activist for many years, now presenting some of her recent projects in Domino Effect, and makes it a point to prove that a small act can make a big difference.
